The Future of DSpace: Making it Personal (Making it Social)

2,549 views

Published on

Presented at NISO's "Getting the Most Out of Your Institutional Repository: Gathering Content and Building Use," (03 Dec 2007)... This presentation describes efforts in the DSpace community (ca. 2007-2008) to give researchers more incentive to "live" within their institutional repository, including features designed to motivate them to spend significant time there, manage their content there, and make formal submission of content into the IR an easier and more natural part of their work. We see the user's personal space or "desktop" within DSpace to be an amplifier of their scholarly activities. We believe that users should have basic --- but in this Web2.0 world, expected --- capabilities available to them for relating their current activities and interests to other artifacts in local DSpace collections. The presentation describes experimental DSpace extensions like item bookmarking/tagging within local collections and using the resulting "context" as a basis for recommending related items. We discuss our thoughts on extending DSpace further to facilitate the scholarly workflow, including mechanisms for identifying and retrieving related items within a repository federation and especially for identifying colleagues with related interests. We believe these techniques can be applied to the identification and harvesting of related materials from other, heterogeneous sources such as external blogs, wikis, and web sources <http: />

Development is ongoing, active, vibrant •A global open source success •In the footsteps of Apache, Mozilla, etc… •Nearly 100 developers, 14 dspace community committers from around the More than 270 registered world Adopters from all sectors live sites and growing • Mostly research and higher • Leading institutional repository education institutions platform (ref: CLIR, ARL, others) • Cultural heritage organizations, • World-wide adoption World- state libraries/museums • >>1m digital assets • Even commercial adopters (Biomed Central, NITLE, CILEA, CASPUR, ???)

  7. 7. dspace foundation goals Organization • Build a “lightweight” organization • Roll out DSpace 2.0 Technology • Foster new development • Create technical infrastructure to support the Infrastructure community • Highlight an exciting set of open content collections Exemplars to showcase application of DSpace • Develop value-added partnerships with commercial, Partnerships non-commercial entities Funding • Achieve a sustainable funding model • Continue to collect feedback from stakeholders Communication around the world

  13. 13. making dspace personal Surveys of open repository adopters confirm the Motivations for and benefits of "institutional" focus of implementing IRs are those of the institutional repositories host institution • enabling greater access to information • providing managed, long-term preservation long- of artifacts These are not necessarily the goals of individual users!
  14. 14. Surveys also identify the real threat to the health of open repositories making dspace personal • sustaining a constant stream of contributions from their user communities open repository platforms are designed for self- self-service ingestion… • …but the strongest and freshest repositories are those with professional staffs who are responsible for content management • This is a luxury few institutions can afford!!!
  15. 15. Participation in an IR today represents extra effort for the busy scholar that adds little value… value… making dspace personal • To their research… • To their authorship… • To their collaboration with others in their field How can we add value for IR users? • Make DSpace personal ! • Give researchers incentives to “live” within their DSpace make submission of add features that manage their content an easier motivate them to content there… and more natural spend time there… part of their work
  16. 16. making dspace personal Example: DSpace recommendation service • Automatically relate user’s current activities and interests to other artifacts, web resources, people Identify and Identify retrieve Bookmarking Recommend colleagues related items and tag items related items with related within interests federation
